Website grades states and counties on social distancing
How would you grade yourself when it comes to social distancing?
A website called Unacast is grading states and counties on its Social Distancing Scoreboard. The company measures data by tracking cell phone locations and has been examining behaviors over the past two months.
Unacast measures change in average mobility based on distance traveled, change in non-essential visits, and differences in encounter density.
